The word Janjira is not native to India and may have originated after the Arabic word Jazeera, which means an island. Murud was once known in Marathi as Habsan ("of Habshi" or Abyssinian). The name of the fort is a concatenation of the Konkani and Arabic words for Island, "morod" and "jazeera". The word "morod" is peculiar to Konkani and is absent in Marathi. The pride of Murud Janjira, Janjira Fort, was once the stronghold of the Abyssinian Sidis who played an important part in the history of the city of Bombay, in the later part of the 17th century. This amazing structure was built by Malik Ambar, who was an Abyssinian minister in the court of the Sultan of Ahmednagar. It reflects the marvel of ancient engineering.
It is considered one of the strongest marine forts in India. The main gate of the fort faces Rajapuri on the shore and can be seen only when one is about 40 feet (12 m) away from it. It has a small postern gate towards the open sea for escape. The fort has 26 rounded bastions. There are many cannons of native and European make rusting on the bastions. But nowadays the fort has all the facilities like palaces, quarters for officers, mosque, two small 60feet deep natural fresh water lakes and so on. A stone carving at the main entrance of the Fort depicts six elephants trapped by a single tiger - a symbol of the bravery of the Sidis.
A special attraction of this fort is 3 huge cannons named Kalalbangdi, Chavri and Landa Kasam. These cannons were said to be feared for their shooting range built with five metals. Another gate to the west is sea-facing, called 'Darya Darwaza'.There is also another fortress, named Ghosalgad, which is located on top of the hill around 32 km (20 mi) east of Murud-Janjira, that was used as the outpost for the rulers of Janjira.
